There are plans now to create just such a group, and the first meeting is scheduled for the afternoon of June 3.

Jon Heaton is one of the organizers. Click on the link below to hear him speak with Dave.

Bus hike turns sour for German group

24BusReduxexterior_web.jpgIt may be the most famous abandoned bus in the world, and it caused some more headaches for Alaska State Troopers recently.

Chris McCandless spent the last few months of his young life living in the bus, located on the Stampede Trail in Denali National Park. His story was documented in the book Into The Wild, and in the film of the same name.
